I took 7 days leave to enjoy most of my college’s winter break away from the office. I had every intention of a lovely staycation where I spent my time sleeping in very late each day and recharging before the final weeks of the semester resume. And then the pending deadlines and office politics and holiday blues hit me pretty hard.
I found myself calling Mr. Glitter to vent about it all on Christmas Eve while sitting at my desk. “I just need a break. I really want to go home and be with my family,” I told him.
